ROB EVANS is the oldest and least traveled of the group. This comes across in his almost child-like excitement. Despite his outdoorsy personality and months of planning he’s hardly prepared for the three-month trek – as evident by his "hard decision" of whether or not to bring along a gun. Juxtaposing with his youthful optimism is a continuous, almost paranoid concern about his health. As the driving stretches become longer and the food stops less frequent he starts to question the organization of the journey. His open, verbal dissatisfaction has an impact on the others who have already had a difficult time relating to him. Rob looks to Lovie for experienced leadership but then has problems accepting it. Needing companionship Rob turns to JLH, uniting against Lovie's guidance and advice.
